We're sure you're all looking forward to a week off (and the extra day, lucky you!!) to recharge those batteries. Even though things are so very different at the moment, we're sure you'll have a tip-top time. Why not try some Autumn sensory activities?
Collect some fallen leaves, sticks, acorns, pine cones and make a gorgeous Autumn work of art...don't forget to take a picture and bring us a copy to put in your book!!
Search through those cupboards and see if you have any 'old' packets of flour/rice/custard powder that you can make marks in. You can always use sand if you have any. Use your fingers, or a stick, or a wooden spoon to create fabulous patterns or write your name.
And don't forget to reuse those leave to make a face...just look at this fab foxy face using a sycamore leaf. Get creative!! Who can make a hedgehog? Or a squirrel...????
Whatever you get up to, make sure to have a funtastic time. Remember to check out the Abacus website for some familiar and brand new reading books. Be safe and well and we'll see you in November. Lots of love from Edwards and Povey xx
Take your child on a clock hunt through your house!! How many (analogue) clocks have you got and where are they? Do you use the clocks for anything special? ....to wake you up in the morning?? Take a photo and send it in to put in our books. Happy hunting!!

We love a Jack video to get us moving, dancing and singing along to some counting songs! We have been counting in 2s for the past few weeks and naming even numbers. Get your disco ball spinning, get on your best disco gear and sing, dance and count along....all the way to 100!!
Next week we will be exploring and talking about 'harvest'. We will be looking at harvest fruit and vegetables. Please could you send in a piece of seasonal fruit or vegetables with your child so we have a nice selection to look at. Please could you write in their home school book that it's for our harvest investigation just in case we eat it!!
Thank you for supporting us!

We have been enjoying an old favourite story this week...Animal Boogie. We love a good sing-along book and this one is soooooo good for actions. Can you leap like the leopard? Slither like the snake or swing like a monkey.
Put on you boogie boots and go wild with the animals in the story.
Don't forget to get in touch if you need any help or advice. Be safe. Cofion oddiwrth Edwards a Povey
Those Autumn leaves keep on falling, so get your wellies and your raincoat on and go hunting. Can you find some yellow leaves? Some red ones? How about orange leaves? Can you find a leaf that is multcoloured????? Can you hear a crunch when you walk on the leaves...pick some up and scrunch them in your hands, but keep one for us!!
Send in some of the autumn leaves you've hunted down so we can add them to our Autumn tuff spot.
Keep your eyes open for conkers, conker shells and pine cones ..... we'll add them as well. Happy hunting from Edwards and Povey.
Hi all...please take a look at the Active Learn website, passwords and log on details have been sent out and books have been allocated for you and your child to enjoy. If you need help or have lost your child's details please get in touch.
In class our younger children have been looking at pop up books, sound stories, textured paged books and stories with a repetitive rhyme. Everyday we have 'ERIC' time which means 'Everyone Reads In Class'. In this time your children can choose a book from our book corner and are given time to read independently. Also we have a group reading session. Our youngest children share a story sack and the older children look at a focused book. Please could you allocate up to 15 minutes a day to take at look at active learn resources with your child or by sharing a favourite book from your own 'library'. Sharing books in your child's routine is a great way to unwind and spend one on one time together and will foster a life long love of books and reading.
As always we are here to help if you need us.

Morning Boys and Girls,
We hope you all had a lovely weekend. This week we will be continuing looking and exploring our emotions. This weeks feeling is being angry. Here is a song to help explain it.
Game 1: Can you make an angry face in the mirror? What happens to your face?
Game 2: Can you make paint an angry using paint/pencils/crayons/shaving foam?
Game 3: Can you think of some angry words? What might you do when you are feeling angry? e.g. stamp you feet.
Game 4: Below is a sorting game, happy, sad and angry.
We hope you have a great day.
Edwards and Povey xx
